I love this restaurant , but yesterday was not a great experience., service was very slow,
food was not as good as other times.
The food was super delicious! Our waiter - Kristina - was extremely nice. The atmosphere there is very cozy. Perfect place for a date or celebration.
Fantastic waiter. Very attentive. The shell fish is somewhat over priced for the portions but could be worse. I’d return for the steak and service alone
Was good, solid B, but not etraodinary
Music not too loud
Excellent service. Our waitress was a 10!
Food was delicious. Great oysters, tuna poke and hamachi. Very fresh and light. Steak and lobster roll were delicious. Mussels pretty good too.
Dessert was wicked- beignets and key lime pie
We enjoy the cocktails and love the assortment of oysters. We enjoyed trying a good variety of dishes. Good selection of different dishes and great desserts
Excellent ambiance and service, but became quiet loud as our meal end and the location began to fill with customers.
All the menu items we had were very good - raw bar, salad, chowder, drinks, wine, caramel panna cotta. Attentive service.
Went to here with my wife, as our first date after baby#2.
Chilled vibe and we sat at the bar. Food is great, but service is better!
Hannah and Andrew behind the bar were just incredible! Andrew makes a mean coffee martini that you should try…
Hannah made sure our flutes were never empty…
Definitely gonna head back soon
Visiting Chicago for weekend. Enjoyed ourselves, food was good and service was excellent.
Oysters were good. Main courses were very limited. The scallops and mussels were basic. Our server was good and friendly.
The food here is terrific and reflects the creativity of the chef. The Shrimp Bruschetta left us wanting more. Next time we will not share!! For entrees we had the fish tacos(not too spicy, but very flavorful) and the fish & chips which were made with walleye, a tasty freshwater fish that day. Our server was knowledgeable and could describe each item in detail. To finish off the meal, we had a delicious panna cotta. We look forward to our next visit there!
Delicious flavors across the board - great service as well. Yes, very expensive. But worth it.
Amazing scallops with acorn squash purée! Knowledgeable and kind wait staff.
The host was not great she lacked common sense. I got there 10 mins before my 9pm 2 person reservation. 3 other two tops where sat and a party of 5 before me and arrived after me. I ended up waiting an additional 15 mins to be sat. It wasn’t until I asked her why I hadn’t been sat that she informed me that they like to seat completed parties…. Now for a party of 5 understandable, a party of 4 i get it. A party of 2?… she would have sat me at the exact same kind of table as a party of one. I also asked her ‘so can I not start spending my money because my other guest isn’t here?’ She then quickly attempted to get me a seat and I ended up at a 4 top. Obviously that wasn’t planned. 2 people do not need all of that space.
I would like to add that no where in their booking process does it say unless the full party is there that they can’t get you seated.
I understand the pandemic has left restaurants with little to pick from as far as staff but for this price point and incredible level of service. They need a better host at the door. First impressions are everything. A host is the first person guest interact with.
First time in and certainly won’t be the last! Service and food were both amazing! Thank you!
Sitting at the bar watching the kitchen busy preparing incredible food, and enjoying the fun conversation and excellent service of and amazing bar team. Food and drink are terrific!
Fantastic experience as usual.
Can't wait to be back next week....
I asked for a quite table and even though there were other tables located away from traffic areas, we were not given the choice. The food had been better in the past. Salty scallops, and the oyster select were not as fresh as in the past.
Open Table needs to change the opening time for GTFish and Oyster Bar. Open Table states that the doors should open at 4:30 pm on Saturday but they open at 5:00. In spite of the difference, the personable manager open the door for us and immediately asked if he could bring us hot water with lemon to take away our chill. This excellent service continued the entire night. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT ALSO
The mussels had definitely gone bad and the clam chowder was super watery. The only good thing we had were the cocktails and the warm lobster roll.
The entire experience was nothing short of incredible. The service, menu selections. Good and drinks were great. They were wonderful in preparing non-alcoholic options for me and went over the top with birthday dessert treats. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic meal and service
Just need my watch and cc I left behind
Our waiter provided outstanding service. Alex was on top of things and it was the best Anniversary/ Birth Day. The food was very high quality. They were very prompt in clearing the table. The experience was so good that I did brag about it on FB. I will be back every time I am in Chicago.
We ordered the clam chowder and crisp for appetizer- very nice. The lobster roll was yummy, too. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and we’re treated to a sweet dessert and champagne on the house. Thanks for making our evening special!
Reliable seafood in a straight-forward setting. Excellent service, reasonable prices.
Liked it a lot. First date there and sat for awhile and left alone-other than a very nice waitress with good suggestions. Will be back soon.
Everyone was very very friendly and attentive. The food is very fresh and flavorful.
Great atmosphere, attentive staff and the food was wonderful. Presentation and taste were on point!
Great time with my grandson. He learned a lot about oysters and eating crab claws. Very helpful servers!!
First time at the restaurant, loved our server, the food was great, and we will definitely be going back.
A nice place - lighting was great - the service was superb - they went out of their way to fill our water glasses constantly - the server(s) were al pleasant and seemed happy to deal with and did their jobs perfectly. I would recommend anytime for those that want seafood however a good atmosphere and great drinks as well!
They menu is too small
Beautiful food, good service, just so loud! We still would come back!
Perfect place to go after seeing Alton Brown!
Excellent wait staff and delicious food! The mussels were amazing!!
The food was delish and we plan on returning, the service was wonderful, great recommendations!
Superb food. Everything was perfectly seasoned, cooked perfectly, presented beautifully. Great flavors, plate presentations were lovely.
